Stunning Old Tractors We’d Love To Own
The Rumley Oil Pull tractors are designed to operate just like their name indicates. Rather than operate on gasoline, it used kerosene. In fact, they were designed to burn any type of kerosene grade making it a very versatile machine. The tractors were produced from the year 1910 all the way up until 1930. The most popular of the models is what you see here. It features a single cylinder with a 10 inch bore and a massive 12 inch power stroke.
The way you started the tractor was quite unique. You had to remove yourself from the cab and use your body weight to get the large flywheel tourney. That was just half of the issue though. Once the engine began to sputter you had to run like mad and hop back inside to adjust your choke in order to keep the engine running smooth. These are very popular with antique tractor collectors. They are always fun to watch start up, if you can manage to at all!
